Job Title:

Research Scientist


I am a researcher in the Life Sciences Department, with particular focus on diversity, evolution and ecology of polar cyanobacteria, microbial mats, toxic cyanobacteria and polar soils. Current projects of my research group include: 1) Diversity and distribution patterns of polar cyanobacteria along ecozones and latitudinal and environmental gradients; 2) Study of cyanobacteria and photosynthetic microbial mats in Antarctic lakes to understand microbialite formation and responds to environmental change; 3) Using historic and Antarctic herbarium collections to study cyanobacteria; 4) Microbial soil biogeography in the Southern Atlantic: South Georgia and the Falkland Islands, 5) The Microverse: a UK-wide citizen science project on eDNA assessment of microbial diversity in urban environments.
